I heard that on the day of judgement those who will be asked questions on their actions will be punished for it.

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

1. will there be certain muslims who will not go through hell like if their good deeds or more than their bad deeds. What about the shaheed will he be asked about what he did in this life. Or what other muslims will not be asked on the day of judgement. 2 I there a difference between paradise and heaven? May Allah guide us all.


It is our belief as Muslims that Almighty Allah Ta’ala sent us to this world
to test our obedience to Him. We also believe in resurrection from the grave
and accountability in the court of Allah Ta’ala. If we are successful in the
court of Allah, we will be favoured with the Mercy of Allah through His
bounties in Jannah (paradise, heaven). If we are unsuccessful, then if Allah
wishes He may forgive us or punish us through Jahannum (hell).

The realities of Jannah are beyond our understanding, therefore, Rasulullah
(Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘The bounties of Jannah have not been
seen by any eye, heard by any ear or have not passed the imagination of any
heart. (Mishkaat).

However, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) described some bounties of
Jannah according to our level of understanding. The ground in Jannah will be
of strong musk, thereby giving out the most beautiful scent. (Ibid). The
pebbles of Jannah will be of precious pearls and rubies. (Ibid). The bricks
of the palaces in Jannah will be of gold and silver. The cement attaching
the bricks will also be of musk. (Ibid)

The carpets in the palaces will be as think as the distance between the
skies and the earth. (Ibid) There will be four streams of milk, honey, wine
and crystal clear water. The Jannah of the lowest person will be ten times
this world. (Bukhari).

No person in Jannah will be regarded low, irrespective of his position.
(Mishkaat). After having witnessed and enjoyed all the bounties of Jannah,
Allah will grant the opportunity to witness His magnificent countenance.
Every dweller of Jannah will be dumb stricken by that view and will
continuously stare at Allah. (Ibid). According to Imaam Ghazzaaly, a person
will continuously stare for at least 80 million years. Thereafter, that
opportunity will be afforded to individuals according to their closeness and
sacrifices they made in this world. Lastly, but not least, Allah will
announce to His successful servants that He has favoured them with His
eternal pleasure and that He will never be displeased with them. (Ibid).
There would not be any great pleasure in Jannah that being conferred with
the pleasure of Allah.

We make Du’aa to Allah to forgive us, our parents, our Asaatidha, our wives
and all our children and the entire Ummah of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi
Wasallam) and to favour us with His Jannah, Aameen.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
